Stepping Stones Lead to Bench

Mix up cement and sand.

Combine at a ratio of 1:4. Gradually add water until the mortar is thick but workable, and then lay this in the bottom of the hole. Set the slab on top, ensuring it is level and sitting just below the surface of the lawn.

Be sure to dig deep enough.

Ensure that you lay your stepping stones about 1/4 inch below the surface of the lawn so that the grass can be cut without damaging the blades of the lawnmower.
